COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at LLCC

LLCC has partnered with Memorial Medical Center to provide a free COVID-19 vaccination clinic on the main campus. This vaccination clinic is available to all college employees and students. It will be held on Thursday, May 13, 9 a.m. to noon in A. Lincoln Commons. The vaccine that will be administered is the Pfizer vaccine. This vaccine requires two rounds of vaccination, so the second vaccine clinic date will take place on Thursday, June 3. If you have not yet been vaccinated and want to take advantage of this convenient opportunity, simply schedule your vaccination time for the clinic.
